He also finished in the runner-up spot in the Suburban Handicap (gr. II) and was third in the Whitney Handicap (gr. I).Catienus, who was campaigned initially in Europe, has won five of 22 starts and earned $370,386. His dam, Diamond City (by Mr. Prospector), was graded stakes-placed, and his third dam, major winner Cathy Honey, is the granddam of Preakness Stakes (gr. I) winner Aloma's Ruler.
